when one of my users opens Outlook 2010, it defaults to the Send / Receive tab, instead of the Home tab. The ribbon is maximized. Any ideas?

Could you have been experimenting with options?

Customize Ribbon

Main Tabs
Up Arrow
(Down Arrow for Send / Receive tab)

Outlook Ribbon

yea we ended up figuring out that the Send/Receive tab was at the top of the list on the right, and when we dragged the Home (Mail) tab back up that resolved the issue! At first I did a repair MS Office in appwiz.cpl and that didnt do anything. – j_bombay Jan 25 '13 at 22:13
